Nike Film Showcases High Performance & Low Environmental Impact

A new film from Nike Better World featuring The Netherlands’ Klass-Jan Huntelaar showcases Nike’s new national team football kits, which combine high performance with minimal environmental impact. The Dutch kit – along with other national team kits including Brazil, USA, Portugal, France, Croatia and Poland - is Nike’s most environmentally friendly kit ever. The shorts are made with 100% recycled polyester; while the jerseys are made with at least 96% recycled polyester.    Since 2010, Nike Football has used an estimated 115 million recycled plastic bottles to create its high performance kits.  Lined up end-to-end that’s enough bottles to stretch more than halfway around the world.
